Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook that eliminates the traditional compartmentalized approach to psychopathology in favor of an integrative approach which demonstrates that disorders are multiply determined by biological, psychological, social, cultural, familial, and political forces. It contains the final DSM-IV criteria, including what are, in some cases, substantial changes from the draft criteria published in March 1993. Annotation c.
